                                  Permit to Transfer
The request and authorization procedures for within port movements of cargo have been
streamlined through the use of electronic requests for permits to transfer (PTT). The AMS client
provides the bill of lading number, container number, FIRMS code of the destined transfer location
and bonded carrier identification number. The results of processing the request are routed to the
AMS client in current output sets and the authorization for a PTT movement is routed to the client
in a current notification set modified to show the additional data.

The Permit to Transfer Record (Record Identifier T01) is required for PTT transactions. It
provides the necessary information to accommodate multiple bills per container, multiple
containers per bill, multiple bills with multiple containers, or multiple sets of one-bill/one container

Each T01 record processed will cause AMS to generate two Bill of Lading Status Notification
(output) records (Record Identifier R02). One R02 record with the disposition code provides the
bill number, the container associated with the permit to transfer, and the other information
normally associated with the R02 record. The second R02 message provides the district/port of
processing, the FIRMS code, and the bonded carrier ID for those bills that have PTT authorization.

PTT’s requests will not be processed against bills of lading in a “held” status.

                                                       blank, the default is that a PTT authorization
                                                       will be issued for all containers associated
